In January 2013, the EWB-UMBC team traveled to Isongo, Kenya for an assessment trip, during which they successfully established relationships with the residents, mapped the community, analyzed the water quality, and surveyed residents on water, sanitation, and hygiene. Now the group is planning an implementation trip for January 2014 to install a clean water system that will benefit 500 people from Isongo.
But they can’t make the trip without your help.
How can you help?
Your donation makes two things possible: (1) Development of a clean water supply for the community of Isongo, Kenya and (2) transformative experiences for UMBC students interested in international, humanitarian work. You can also help the EWB-UMBC project by spreading the word to your friends, family, and co-workers. Money raised will help pay for materials and tools needed to drill wells in Isongo, as well as travel and lodging costs for student volunteers.
With your help, EWB-UMBC hopes to raise $20,050 to send a team of 6 students to Kenya to complete this important project.
